A man was sentenced to 10 years in prison for raping another man.
34-year-old Atan Ngwenya, asked the court to be lenient with him because he lost his family over the incident.
His wife took his two children and left him. Ngwenya was already in prison for theft when he committed the crime. He was originally sentenced to seven years in prison and was supposed to be freed in one year.
However, now he will stay in prison after he was convicted of sodomizing a fellow inmate at the Khami prison in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe.
Ngwenya sneaked into the bed of a 26-year-old man and took advantage of the strong medication the man had taken that put him into a deep sleep.
The man suspected that he was violated and filed a complaint with prison officials. The victim was taken to the hospital where the rape was confirmed.
Ngwenya was sentenced to 10 years in prison, and three years were suspended on condition he does not commit any offense involving unlawful sexual activity.
